Parts for the MT-1X, where to find? Can't Post

Ah, the joys of Ebay. I recently recieved my MT-1X and found it to be sans bags, PC's, handles, and front risers. Paraflite refuses to sell to me since I am a civilian so I am at an impasse. I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find parts for the MT?

Ask around. Most dropzones have folks with the background to have that kind of stuff laying around. I am sure someone will PM you with info.

Main risers are easy to replace as almost any 3-
Ring riser will fit an MT-1X harness.
Ripcord and release handles are a bit more fussy. Fortunately, the better FAA Senior Riggers know how to measure cables.
I think the MT-!X uses a reserve pilotchute similar to the Swift skydiving container.
Unfortunately a reserve d-bag is going to be the most difficult component to replace.
Swapping major components is a complex process best delegated to Master Riggers.
Good luck.

Just out of curiousity. Why did you purchase this item?

That depends.

If you mean why did I purchase somethign with so many missing parts, the answer is that the description didn't mention that it wasn't complete.

If you mean why did I purchase a mil rig for sport use, the answer is 275 lbs with twenty pounds of canopies, ~10 pounds of clothing/misc. gear, and an elevation of 6600 msl. I needed something that was cheap, grossly overengineered, and capable of holding 300 sf canopies.

What kind of parts do you need, I have a lot of MT-1XX's on hand some for parts some for jumping, Also have a number of MC-4's. I have one MT on Ebay now that will go for less than the parts are worth if I leave it on there. I put a starting price of 400.00 which I know the canopies are worth that so I make take it off and part it out and real shame as it is a very good rig last packed 2/12

Contact Bob Mathews at National Parachute Test Center (ScotchLead@aol.com) for parts. He usually has a lot of that stuff laying around.

I'm good. Someone resurrected a 9 year old thread.
